BROMSGROVE, England--January 13, 2012:

Ford [http://bit.ly/ycHLx4%20 ] CEO Alan Mulally has told just-auto that he is convinced the US vehicle market can reach unit sales of 14m this year as the economy continues to improve.

Mulally made the comments to just-auto at this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit against a slew of positive economic indicators.

Unemployment - that had remained stubbornly high - is starting to fall while it equally appears new jobs are being created as pent-up demand for cars is finally starting to be released following the slump of 2008.

"We see a certain improvement in the economy in the US - probably 2%-3%," Mulally told just-auto. With that, we think the auto industry [could do] 13.5m-14m units."
